Lucky Tiger Face Scrub Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Lucky Tiger, Amazon, & Swanson Vitamins.
Scent: citrus with a hint of honey.
I Like: the subtle scent.  Effectively gets rid of dead skin and debris.  Great for before shaving
Not a fan of: the sodium laureth sulfate and BHT ingredients.

Gently exfoliating once or twice a week can help keep your complexion clear.  Face scrubs lift debris and dead skin cells that may be trapped in pores.  Lucky Tiger Face Scrub works particularly well for me before I shave.  The scent is a pleasant, uplifting blend of citrus and honey.  It contains some great natural ingredients including jojoba oil, green tea, hibiscus, borage oil, and honey.  Those with sensitive skin take note: the product’s exfoliating bits are not very fine, so you have to be extra gentle when scrubbing your skin.

Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at Drugstore.com, Walgreens, and Ulta.
Scent: hard to describe “masking fragrance.”
I Like: how relatively gentle the cleanser is.  Low foaming.
Not a fan of: the sodium laureth sulfate and paraben ingredients.  Don’t care for the synthetic scent.

Cetaphil’s Daily Facial Cleanser is a good face wash to start with if you’re new to skin care.  It’s fairly inexpensive and much gentler on your skin than your typical bar soap.  This product is made for people with normal to oily skin, so if you have overly-sensitive skin, then I suggest using a face wash that is fragrance-free and made without sodium laureth sulphate, a known skin irritant.  What I like most about Cetaphil’s Daily Facial Cleanser is that it’s a clear, low-foaming gel that doesn’t dry out the skin too much.  I found the synthetic fragrance a little off-putting, but not unbearable.  Give this product a try if you’re tired of using that bar of Dial on your face.

Many guys don’t like to spend the time to shop for skin care.  Even I sometimes get exhausted just trying to figure out what grooming products to try next.  Beta Naturals All-In-One Clean Shave Oil + Moisturizer was developed to help men simplify their shaving routines.  It’s basically a shaving oil and an aftershave balm/moisturizer in one convenient all-natural product.  It provides a nice glide for your razor while you shave and helps your skin recover post-shave.   The Clean Shave Oil + Moisturizer has a very light consistency and absorbs well into the skin.  It won’t clog pores or razors.  Oils of argan, jojoba, and grapeseed nourish and soothe while peppermint and rosemary refresh and cool.  Lavender (sensitive skin) and Earl Grey (all skin types) options are also available.  If you want to streamline your grooming routine while minimizing bumps and razor burn, try Beta Naturals All-In-One Clean Shave Oil + Moisturizer.  It could change the way you shave.
